Hello, you need to replace the gas coils. Over time, they tend to get weak and stop energizing to allow the gas to flow thru the valve. There are 2 coils and one is the booster.

Best of luck :)

SOURCE: hotpoint condenser tumble dryer aquarius cdt00- wont dry

I am not familiar with this particular unit, but I have a condensing dryer (Malber) which pumps out the water by itself. I am guessing that your unit requires you to empty a bin manually. Even if the bin is empty, I think the unit thinks it needs to be emptied and that is why the dryer will not work to give you hot air. If you do have such a bin, it might have a weight switch which the unit uses to detect if the bin needs emptying. See if the weight switch is working. The same weight switch idea is used on dehumidifiers.

Vents can fool you sometimes they seem to be ok but still cause problems. Try running with vent unhooked from machine one time and see if it works ok.
Check for leaks air leaks around the door or anywhere else.

SOURCE: mdg5500aww lp gas dryer heating problem it fires

When a gas dryer starts and the burner does not stay lit more than one minute the flame sensor is not detecting the flame to as a by design safety feature the burner is automatically shut off. It is not sensing flame so it is shut off.

This is the most likely suspect. http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-mdg5500aww-%3d%3di2681&PartID=2681

BEFORE you change this part make sure that the outside vent flapper and the ducting form the back of the dryer is free of lint. Disconnect the dryer vent and try it with nothing connected to the dryer. Also check around the lint filter area for lint especially in the bottom. If there is not a lint or ducting problem then by all means change the flame sensor.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Dryer gets hot on the outside of machine


Clean the lint out of the pipe that goes out side, also the grate on the outside, If that dosent do it take the back off and see where the lint comes out, take that apart and clean the lint out. I have had this problem before and just recently. The dryer has a saftey fuse, when the dryer gets too hot to shut off, thats why your clothes are not drying. 1st try the pipe that goes outside including the end(outside).

Dryer runs but the heater element gets hot then shuts off. After a few minutes it will heat up again. Is the problem more likely: the hi-limit thermostat or the multi-temp thermostat or the thermal cut-off...


The heating element is SUPPOSED to cycle on and off. The element has a regulating thermostats to ensure it does not get too hot. If the element were to stay on continuously, the dryer would overheat to the point of the element eventually failing, or create a fire hazard. It will cycle on and off dependent upon the internal temperature the moisture level in your clothing (if you are using the Auto-Dry feature).

If your dryer IS still heating, but you are experiencing longer dry times, you may want to check the dryer interior cabinet and/or the entire exhaust duct run to ensure you don't have any clogs or choke points. The following link explains many of the problems that can cause poor drying efficiency:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, check your installation to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. A dryer in a clogged state or having improper air flow will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to actually overheat. Eventually, this can lead to component failures and is the source of fire hazards.

If you have any questions, please post back an let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Dryer is running but dosent get hot.


if the fire is cimming on when you 1st start it the and as it runs it does not come back on. the problem is the coils, if the fire never comes on the problem can be the ignitor or the flame sensor in most cases.

DISCONNECT THE EXHAUST FROM THE BACK OF THE DRYER AND TRY DRYING ONE LOAD OF LAUNDRY. IF THE DRYER WORKS O.K. WITH THE EXHAUST DISCONNECTED, YOU HAVE A RESTRICTION IN THE EXHAUST DUCT SOMEWHERE.
